Lanthanide atom sizes (the lanthanide contraction) directly control the type of structure formed by the coordination of a single multidentate ligand, 3,5-pyrazoledicarboxylic acid (H3pdc). Single-layer, double-layer ([Eu2(Hpdc)3(H2O)6], see picture), and three-dimensional networks were found. Control of the reaction pH plays a key role in the structure formation in this system.
